Sant Miguel and Barceloneta
Playa de Sant Miquel called due to the nearby Church of Sant Miquel del Port, it is a centrally and lively beach that despite its small size makes up one of the busiest points of the city’s coastline.
Barceloneta is central located and it is easy accessible by public transport. It is one of the favorite beaches for foreigners and local young people who practice sports activities.
The beach has several volleyball courts, children’s play areas, table tennis, a gymnastics area and a “biblio-beach” service.
Located between Hospital del Mar and Calle de la Marina, Somorrostro Beach comprises a section of coast that previously belonged to Barceloneta Beach.
The beach was recently renamed to pay tribute to the shantytown of Somorrostro, that after a hundred years of life was demolished for Franco’s visit to Barcelona in 1966.
